SG Wild In Wild FS Little Artist 1*M
VEEV89 @ 03-03
Sugar is not a sweet goat. She is, and always has been, an introvert. She’s a little artist because, as a kid, she’d be off happily hanging out by herself rather than partying with the rest of the teenagers. But she’s proven her worth and earned her place time and again. Usually used to pumping out four-packs of kids and easily feeding them all, she arrived at her 2019 appraisal pleasantly plump, only having twins for her fourth freshening. She took a ding in her dairyness for the extra fluff (but don’t we all). But, under all the gruff and fluff, she’s a well-balanced girl that accentuates the strength in dairy strength but she does have it all. She has a lovely head with a nice broad muzzle, correct and straight legs and wonderful body capacity. She earned her Superior Genetics award on my crummy milking schedule as a second freshener and easily kicks off her lactations well over a half gallon.

Rowdy was a late bloomer, missing the boat on a couple intended breedings and freshening for the first time as a three year-old. But, turns out she was worth the wait. She’s carrying on her dam’s legacy of understated performance. She’s not flashy but is a correct, hard-working doe with few faults. She was my favorite first freshener in 2018 due to her ease on the milkstand and her persistence once we switched to 24-hour milkings. In a summary, we breed for low-maintenance goats who hold lactations and production on OAD milkings. Rowdy is this goat to a T.

Maggie was the goat who taught me what to look for in a dairy goat. She has been an eye-catching girl even as a youngster. She is a level, cleanly blended doe with a lovely face that almost makes it possible to overlook how demanding that face is at dinner time. She has wonderful depth and capacity balanced by sharp dairy character, down to her sleek coat and supple skin. She easily qualified for her milk star in production in a one-day milking competition.

The KonMari method of decluttering is all the rage: get rid of anything that doesn’t spark joy in your life. Following this method, Detour stays no matter her LA score or milk output. This little doe sparks joy. She is an easy goat to love and has a strong work ethic. She has her feet on the gate, udder in the air every morning and runs to the milk stand with gusto, wiggling her tail like a kid drinking milk when she starts gobbling up her grain. Lucky for us, we aren’t stuck keeping a pet doe around because Deets holds her own both in LA and filling a milk pail. She scored an E in legs, back and dairy strength on her appraisal as a third freshener. She milks easily, with lovely udder texture and large orifices and earned her milk star to live up to her Pholia Farm legacy at a one day milking competition.

Ellie comes from some of my favorite milky lines so she was an easy choice to add to the herd as a doeling. She’s lived up to her lineage, growing up to be a milking powerhouse as a second freshener. We had some technical difficulties with her one day milking competition submission and her milk sample was unfortunately spilled in the lab so no components were scored. But she still milked 4.3lbs and was well over 5lbs when I ran an unofficial test the month prior. She has lovely capacity in her udder for our goals of OAD milking as well as large teats that are a bit outsized for Nigerian inflations but would be lovely for a hand milker. She’s a deep doe who stands on straight, square legs.
